    I think editorial believed they had a good thing with Ben Reilly - Scarlet Spider. They had a beloved character that a vocal fan-base had been desperate to return for over a decade, they had a safe...

    I loved this series! Every issue seemed like a love letter to Superman and highlighted why Superman is so good, amazing, hopeful, awesome, strong (both in power and mentally), impossible, etc.

    Here's a problem, though, what can Superman do that is unique?

    We have seen him fly, we've seen his heat vision, we've seen him rescue planes, we've seen him lift an Island into space, we've seen...

    Easily Hunted or me.

    Everything else has felt strangely rushed or just fallen a little flat.

    I'll give the nod to Absolute Carnage as it was really fun. Also, the tie-ins were mostly great which is rare for a big cross-over.

    I love Spider-Verse, but a lot of the tie-ins weren't...

    Their writing styles are both so different it's almost comparing apples and oranges. Tom King writes a slow, methodical, character driven piece, whereas Snyder blasts you in the face with awesome...

    I always liked Lucius as the man Bruce trusted to run Wayne in his absence. It gave Bruce a connection to the real world outside of Batman and a friend who he trusted implicitly. He didn't turn out...

    I get that standpoint, but I'd rather not have another film than see a soul-less, focus tested, forgettable JJ Abrams nothing for 2 hours. The goal, for me, is to put good Superman out into the...
  9. Poll: I really don't want to see JJ Abrams with...

    I really don't want to see JJ Abrams with Superman. His body of work is not that impressive over the last decade, and he's become more of a crown-pleasing, mindless blockbuster guy who mostly...

    JMS is one of my favourite Spider-man writers, and probably the only reason I ever returned to the character after the Byrne reboot. The vast majority of the run is fantastic and the depth of...

    As much as I love JMS, whichever way it fell this idea was a dud.

    Gwen being pregnant (and the longstanding lie) makes little sense, magically aged children is a weak way of forcing the...

    I recently got around to re-reading this in one of the Epic Collections and it's an absolute blast to read. And bat-shit insane with it's twists and turns! :)

    Spidey has loads of great events in his long history. Immediately coming to mind are Ends of the Earth, KLH, Dying Wish/Superior Spider-man and I'll will always have a soft-spot for Spider-Hunt (and...

    F.A.C.A.D.E. Lives!

    For years, Peter has lived with the guilt of being unable to save his friend and colleague Lance Bannon, or bring his killer to justice. When new evidence is discovered by...

    For a minute there, I thought this was about the short lived late 90's "Supermen of America" who I'd mis-remembered as being called Team Superman.

    ...trying to find anything about SoA (without...

    With the whole Mephisto garbage and it's wording, I was really hoping he would be split and be arch nemeses for a while. We get to keep Superior Spider-man and the Doctor Octopus fans get him back....

    Dude still wears a Spider-man costume with a tongue, so I don't really feel he is divorced.

    I actually think Cates has done a great job re-establishing Venom in Spider-man's universe and giving...

    Batman/'Tec and Superman/Action Comics are doing fine, so my initial though is that Spider-man absolutely should be maintaining a secondary title. I think this just proves that people aren't into...

    I quite liked what Adam Glass was doing. That's really the highest praise I have for any of these.

    As this was in essence a Superman event and with the whole Manhunter thing I was hoping Leviathan was going to be Hank Henshaw, the Cyborg (Superman). He was head of the Manhunters under Johns, so it...

    There is a part of me that is hoping his Penguin goes full Bullseye and we get a completely over the top, campy cartoon villain.

    Affleck's Daredevil may not have been the best but damn was Farrell...

    Yeah, and I think it is massively detrimental despite Spectacular actually being pretty good. I feel the movies have taken a similar arc.

    However, I do appreciate that I'm speaking as a Spider-man...

    NOT A KID.

    That's honestly all I want now, something fresh and not just set at high school age for the 90,000,000,000th time.

    He is supposed to be very, very fast. It frustrates me that this is so rarely used, as it's a huge advantage.

    I think there is a lot of good in the whole period.

    Ben was a fantastic character, was mostly handled quite well and is still beloved by many fans. Kaine was an interesting new antagonist and...
